Best documentary on World War II,
This review is from: The World At War - 9 Volume Gift Set [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This one stands out as the all-time best ever documentary on World War II. The combination of live black and white footage, indepth analysis of the events and circumstances, and the unparalleled narration by Sir Lawerance Olivier help to make this the definitive serious on the subject. The World At War was produced in the early Sixies, which helps add to the realism and timelessness of the interviews. For my money, the only other documentary series on war which comes close is the Civil War by Steve Burns. Otherwise, The World At War stands alone at the top.
